Paul Merson makes Tottenham title prediction with ‘unbelievable’ target up for grabs

Former midfielder believes focus should still be a top-four finish

Despite their stellar start to the season, Paul Merson predicts that Tottenham will not win the Premier League.


Even if Spurs lose their early lead at the top of the table, the former Arsenal midfielder has explained why they should still be able to have a “unbelievable” debut season under Ange Postecoglou.

Tottenham led the table going into the international break after defeating North London rivals Arsenal 1-0 at Luton.

He described the game at Kenilworth Road for Sky Sports, saying, “It was a funny game.”

“Considering how many opportunities they missed in the first fifteen minutes, I was sitting there thinking, ‘If Harry Kane was playing now, the game would have been over.'”

With the exception of the goal, Spurs did not appear to be scoring after that. But good for them; you have to put up your hands after losing to 10 men and persevering to win. Even though I am aware that Luton is at the bottom, it is still difficult. Although Spurs missed a couple opportunities, I believe they ultimately dug in and revealed a different side of Tottenham.

“Well done, they are currently leading the league; will they continue to do so? No, but, that isn’t the

“It would be an amazing season for Tottenham if they were to qualify for the Champions League the next year.”

Despite their Sunday loss at Arsenal, Merson is certain that Manchester City is still the side to beat, saying it was a positive development for the league overall.

The 55-year-old continued, “You look at their squad and it is much bigger than everyone else’s.”

“This season, the league champion will be the team that finishes higher than Man City.” It is impossible for two or three teams to place higher than them.

“For Arsenal, it was an unbelievable result,” he continued. In addition, it benefits the league because it includes a tonne of teams besides Arsenal.
